What Alice loves about VisArts? The sense of community!
I’m not an artist, but I love to watch artists at work. I have taken classes in ceramics and quilting and what I really enjoyed was the feeling of being able to create something beautiful from a lump of clay or from fabric squares and thread.
What I love most about VisArts is the sense of community. You can come here by yourself to take a class, view one of our exhibitions or attend a community event, but you’re also surrounded by other people engaging in the arts.
On of my most memorable moments at VisArts was two summers ago when a participant in our class for wounded veterans made a point of thanking me on behalf of his family. VisArts provided his son with a scholarship to attend our summer art camp while his Dad was undergoing medical treatment at Walter Reed. Despite his severe injuries, the dad was so appreciative that his son was able to enjoy his summer camp experience just like any other kid.
It makes my day when I hear about the impact the arts have on the individuals we serve.
